Sprezzatura

Sprezzatura is an Italian word originating from Castiglione’s The Book of the Courtier, where it is defined by the author as “a certain nonchalance, so as to conceal all art and make whatever one does or says appear to be without effort and almost without any thought about it.

It’s an Italian Renaissance way of being romantic, to try to be as romantic as possible through your ordinary life.

There’s so much more magic in the ordinary.
